Basic Needs Services for the Unhoused


This report examines basic needs such as mobile showers and laundry, storage and hygiene kits for unhoused and precariously housed populations. The objective of the project was to identify creative ways that organizations across the country are supporting unhoused and precariously housed people with basic necessities related to self care and hygiene and to share those experiences with local groups. We sought to learn more about how organizations provide basic needs, what challenges they face in doing so, and how they resolve issues.
